strong words as well from u.s. secretary of state john kerry. he's calling it an invasion, quote, it is an incredible act of aggression, really a stunning willful choice by president putin to invade another country. russia is in violation of the sovereignty of ukraine, russia is in violation of its international obligations, russia is in violation, kerry says, of its obligations under the u.n. charity, helsinki act, in violation as well of its obligations under the budapest agreement. he goes on to say, secretary kerry, you don't behave in a 19th century fashion by, again he uses this word, invading another country on completely trumped up pretexts. nato ambassadors are expected to hold an urgent meeting today on the situation in ukraine. our own erin mclaughlin is live. you have u.s. officials, secretary kerry calling this an invasion. what exactly are nato officials considering there? >> hi, jim. earlier today the nato secretary general gave a brief statement to the media in which he called on russia to deescalate tensions. take a listen to what he had to say. >> what russia is
this week. secretary of state john kerry said it would be a grave mistake for russia to embark on any kind of military intervention in ukraine. kerry spoke hours after vladimir putin put troops in the western military district and the central military district on alert. the western district borders ukraine. but russia insists the announcement has nothing to do with the events unfolding in ukraine. we have more now from moscow. >> reporter: the announcement of these military alerts has raised speculation that they are linked with what is going on you rain. that's speculation that is being dismissed by by russia's military minister. they say it has not tag with ukraine, but it's russian forces being pushed through these unannounced tests. basically making sure that the army, the navy, and the air force can react to any perceived threats as quickly as they should be able to. now they did say that the athleteathletesfleetsare being . now, said what is going on with the ukraine there are probably people who are fairly high up in the defense ministry and in the asian government as well. at a tim

to this counter message that's come from administration officials today. you heard it from chuck hagel, john kerry, saying very publicly and very sternly, don't do anything that can be misinterpreted. don't go into the country. but it's interesting. do they trust putin? that's a question. john kerry was asked that question today. and his answer was very interesting. he said, listen, he has made these assurances. and in kerry's words those assurances have quote some value. it's not exactly a winning endorsement of the trust that u.s. officials have in president putin. >> what about ukraine's ousted president? he's still whereabouts unknown, right? >> reporter: that's right. he is. but he's made plans to have a press conference tomorrow in russia. and russian state media is reporting that he is in fact already in russia. you know there's been an arrest warrant issued for him in ukraine, russian state media saying that russia has accepted his request for security. but this is something else that john kerry referred to today. he said that vice president biden has tried to reach him for over the last 1
are actually kind of bipartisan on this one. secretary of state john kerry told my colleague andrea mitchell that he hopes it doesn't pass. republicans, including mitt romney and the state's two senators also say it's not good for business. companies like apple, delta, american airlines and marriott are also opposed. even three of the republicans who voted for the bill, including one of its co sponsors, are backtracking in the face of the backlash. did i mention the super bowl? because that's at stake, too. you know that game that attracts 110 million viewers. that will be played in arizona next year. well, probably played in arizona next year. some business leaders are worried that a backlash could mmarr glendale. they say we do not support this legislation. so, yeah, there's a chance someone will have a worst super bowl than the broncos this year. sorry, denver. last night governor brewer tweeted, quote, i assure you as always i will do the right thing for the state of arizona. so the governor's going to pull a spike lee and do the right thing. that's great. but exactly what is the right t
on this, but i did read today that secretary of state john kerry came out against this bill even though he's the secretary of state and this is strictly a domestic affairs issue. now i would be happier if secretary kerry would spend more time defending religious liberty abroad rather than attacking it at home. for example, he's spoken against this arizona bill, but i don't know that he's said anything about the 58 nigerians that were slaughtered yesterday which got a little two-paragraph mention in "the washington post." >> first of all, i want to thank you for raising that. i do think there actually is real religious persecution of christians around the world and we need to talk about that, but one thing i'm concerned about here, you and your organization are presenting this whole thing as if this christian community in this country are coming under this massive assault, yet now i think you have to change your position. you have christians rushing to this side, you have mormons rushing to this side. wouldn't you accede that this is not about the christians being set upon by anti-christian
tours by russian ships. does it, cold war? secretary john kerry said yesterday, "this is not rocky iv ." don't you love that face? seriously, that seems to be the international response. >> this is something everyone was very concerned about in terms of the russian speaking population. it was part of russia until about 1954 come of the soviet union. and the concern is with ninkovich on, where will you have the russian speaking population feeling under siege? --you mentioned, we want to they are saying they want to rejoin russia. were talking over the break about the sphere of influence that russia is trying to protect. and that has been a long-term story. there was an interesting claim about syria. >> this goes back to international relations. are we trying to redo the soviet bloc? simple as putin wanting a russian bloc? look at what has happened with the expansion of nato, they very much believe there is a western effort and a nato-led effort to break apart its sphere of influence. >> can i ask a dumb question? why is no oil moved? >> there is really no oil in the story. many are con
that an adult with with them, and not just dropped off. >> secretary of state john kerry is due to arrive in the capital city, kiev, within hours. and there are reports the u-s is suspending some upcoming trade and commerce with russia. secretary kerry's visit comes as russian troops tighten their grip on the crimean peninsula. the russian military is reportedly preparing to defend the narrow land that links it to ukraine. as many as six thousand russian soldiers now occupy positions around ukrainian army posts. >> if an fact that continue, we are examining a whole series of steps economic and diplomatic. we will have a negative impact and that is the status in the world. >> president obama also called on congress to work with his administration on economic help for ukraine. and on monday, russia's foreign minister slammed the west for threatening "sanctions and boycotts" over russia's actions in crimea. >> some residents near the cow palace are without power right now. pg&e says a over 2300 customers are affected. the outage started around 3:00 a.m.. pg&e hopes to get things back up and
a remarkable exclusive sit-down interview with secretary of state, john kerry, and made the news on everything from the crisis in the ukraine to north korea. take a listen. >>> what we're hoping is that russia will not see this as a sort of continuation of the cold war. we don't see it that way. we do not believe this should be an east/west russia/united states, this is not "rocky iv," believe me. >> why isn't this genocide? >> well, andrea, that gets into all kinds of definitions. what it is is wholesale killing of your own people. they have conducted executions using .122-millimeter aircraft guns to obliterate people and force people to watch these kinds of executions. this is an evil, evil place. and it requires enormous focus by the world in order to hold it accountable. >> that was nbc's andrea mitchell with secretary kerry doing what andrea does best. we'll be watching for reactions from that wide-ranging interview all day. catch andrea's show at 12:00 p.m. eastern time here on msnbc. i am at 1:00. we make a great time. next up on "ronan farrow daily," a third of our country is plunging
